There's no place like home.

There's no place like home.
Home is where my husband and I reside; wherever that may be.

A fun visit.

 The weekend of Caiti's visit we drove over to the Casino to see their gingerbread house display.  They have apparantly done this a couple of years now. (See how much I know and I am a native!) Anyway, I read about it in the paper and thought that my niece who is a terrific cook and baker would enjoy it.
This display was not only fun because of the sheer size and thought of the work that went into it and the cleverness of it all but Layn had a ball.
He and the two Nutcrackers that guarded the display became fast friends.  They had no hesitation about letting him in.

I am no photographer but there was actually "snow" in the form or soap bubbles falling while we were walking through courtesy of a gentleman who enjoyed Layn's reactions as much as we did.

These buildings were all edible except for the wooden frames that supported them. They were large enough so that a child of Layn's size could have played inside of them.

Each one sported a different snowman with a different style cap and scarf.  There were bridges and a huge waterwheel over the stream that ran alongside of the barn.  The silo was my favorite part. It was covered all in chocolate bars.

This church had "stained glass" windows that were lit from within.

I think that this will become an annual event for us.  I know that this kid enjoyed it as much as Layn did.
